Challenge # 225 CAS Embossed

Good Monday Morning and welcome to this weeks Challenge #225 at the Kraft Journal.
For this weeks theme we have selected CAS Embossed.  That can be the use of embossing powders or embossing the paper itself. Take a look at what the design team has for us and then show us your take on this theme.

Tammy Hobbs

For this week's "CAS - Embossed" challenge, Tammy started with a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock. Using a rose embossing folder, she embossed a piece of pink cardstock and layered it to the bottom quarter of the card front.  She took a length of Pink Baker's Twine and wrapped it above the embossed layer and tied in a double bow. She stamped a rose in the middle of a die-cut circle and layered in a white doily adding to center of the card.  Lastly she stamped her sentiment in Vintage Sepia Ink just below her focal image. For additional pictures, please visit Tammy's blog: Creating Somewhere Under The Sun.

Marsha doesn't use embossing powders very often, but she pulled them out for this Thank You Card for one of our military heroes and used an embossing folder too.  Starting with Light Kraft Cardstock, she embossed the sentiment and the backing for the die cut with copper.  The white star embossed piece is backed with Brown Kraft then wrapped with  Baker's Twine and Natural Hemp Cord.

Karen Letchworth
For this week's "Emboss It" Challenge, Karen Letchworth used her favorite embossing folder.  It's called Swiss Dots, and she inked it a bit to make the embossed dots a bit more visible.  Karen's card started with a Small Lunch Bag Kraft Note Card to which she added a piece of floral patterned paper and her embossed paper (in pink).  Next, she added a Tim Holtz Journaling Ticket, and on top of that is her sentiment which was also applied to a scrap of her embossed paper, and is wrapped with a length of Light Green Baker's Twine.  The sentiment is a rub-on that she attached using her Bone Folder Tool which really helps apply rub-ons with ease.  Karen also made a sweet flower using a die-cut and some inked Vintage Dictionary Pages.  In the center of her flower, she attached a button that's tied with Oatmeal Cream Seam Binding.  For a complete supply list and additional photos, you're welcome to visit Karen's Blog, My Cup Runneth Over.

  1. Like the embossed DT creations. The pink with white & Kraft is CAS and stylish. The stars Hero Kraft & white card w/ Copper embossing is a wonderful salute to a person who gave us our freedom. The variety of embellishments on the 3rd card is pretty and the Swiss Dots embossing folder is a fav of mine also. Happy Memorial Day to everyone.
